Tough is a material that is great for mid-stage prototypes because of its ease of use and office-friendliness. An added benefit over PLA is its durability, pliability, and machinability which makes it perfect for snap fits and assemblies.

MakerBot Tough filament was developed not only for its strength and part performance but also to overcome two of the most glaring issues that hamper ABS: warping and curling.
At 2X the impact strength of ABS, MakerBot® Tough™ filament offers superior durability for industrial prototyping and manufacturing aid applications. With tensile and flexural strength that match ABS, designers and engineers can create parts that hold up under all types of stress.
